Via Sullivan, TPM has a great quote from SenatorKey quote…
Why, if gays are allowed into the military, Chambliss said, soon the armed forces will allow all sorts of other things.
“Alcohol use, adultery, fraternization, and body art,” said Chambliss.
Alcohol? Military guys are going to start drinking because they have gays in their unit? I guess times have changed. When I was enlisted we lived from paycheck to paycheck. You could tell where we were in the pay cycle by the quality of beer we swilled. For the first week, it was Miller or Bud. The second week it was whatever weasel piss was cheapest. As an officer, I think every trip to the O-Club ended with a drinking contest.
Adultery and fraternization? I felt odd sometimes in Saudi Arabia being one of the few who was not screwing around. Maybe he thinks that guys will have to try harder to prove that they like women.
Body art? I thought the Navy invented tattoos. Does Senator Chambliss know anyone in the military?
Or, maybe he was just trying to be funny.
